 "Trinity Lutheran Church is dedicated to the pursuit of Social Justice. We affirm that Jesus came to bring good news to the poor, liberty to the captives, recovery of sight to the blind, and freedom to the oppressed (Luke 4:18).

LGBTQIA Rights 

Trinity is probably the only church in the surrounding neighborhood to perform same-sex marriages. We have a long history of fighting for the rights of our LGBTQIA+ brothers and sisters. We strive to embody the welcome that God extends to all people-regardless of their gender identity or sexual orientation.
